I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Not Recommended For Robotic Prostatectomy

Robotic prostatectomy does not perform for all patients who have prostate problems. First, some prostate problems of low severity can be solved by other methods. Some patients may not notice that they have prostate cancer and may cause this disease to progress; palliative methods are used in such cases. Finally, not all hospitals may have the appropriate equipment and physicians for robotic prostatectomy, so the more traditional open prostatectomy or laparoscopic prostatectomy may be referred.

Discharge From Hospital

Duration Of Operation

2-4 hours

Preparation

It is very important that you inform your health care team about your health problems. You will also be asked to provide a complete list of medications you are taking and not to use blood thinners such as aspirin. You cannot drink alcohol 48 hours before the operation. You will also be asked not to eat or drink anything from a few hours before the operation, and you will also need to go to mechanical bowel preparation.

How It Is Performed

Robotic prostatectomy is performed with a few small incisions in the abdomen, just like laparoscopic prostatectomy. The doctor operates this operation with a computer and does not touch the operation area it causes to decrease the risk of infection. In the final stage of robotic-assisted prostatectomy, if the whole of the patient's prostate is removed, the doctor attaches bladder to the urethra.

Recovery

The biggest advantage of robotic prostatectomy is a shorter recovery time than open prostatectomy. Most of the patients who choose the best clinics can leave the hospital only a few hours after the operation, and the others will stay for a day in hospital but still less than other kinds of prostatectomy — step by step to daily activities. There will be a urinary catheter for a few days, but it will be removed later. You should avoid strenuous activities to avoid any complications. Your return to your normal sexual life takes place step by step. After robotic prostatectomy, it may be difficult to be erect for 1 week.

Risks

Robotic prostatectomy procedure has some risks, such as: 
• Formation of blood clots 
• Infections 
• Damage to surrounding organs 
However, it is much more plausible with small cuts and a low bleeding rate.

Side Effects

Robotic prostatectomy treatment has no side effects. However, in some cases, erectile dysfunction may cause serious distress in the patient. In such cases, you should consult your doctor.

Success Rates

The use of prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer has been successful at a survival rate of 80% over a 10-year rate. The success of robotic prostatectomy in the context of the comfort of sexual life is the same as in other types, and 80% of the patients have no problem in this regard postoperatively.

Faq

What is Robotic Prostatectomy? 
Robotic prostatectomy (or robotic-assisted prostatectomy) is the latest generation of prostatectomy surgery. It utilizes advanced device commanded by a doctor through a computer, which precisely removes the prostate or its part through small incisions. 

What is the Advantage of Robotic Prostatectomy over Open Prostatectomy or Laparoscopic Prostatectomy? 
Robotic prostatectomy is more precise and guarantees less bleeding and complications as well as shorter prostatectomy recovery time. 

Why Isn’t the Robotic Prostatectomy more Common in Hospitals? 
It is a relatively new technology, requiring expensive equipment and a vastly experienced specialist to operate it. For this reason, it may take years for it to be more common across the world.
